Age doesn't necessarily matter. Plenty of players plateau at a young age and I think Demers is one of them. He will never be as good offensively as Burns or Boyle and isn't good enough defensively to make him worth keeping IMO.

Your bias is showing. How can you even judge that? You simply don't know if Braun is going to continue to get better or if Demers is going to plateau. Not to mention you're completely ignoring the huge improvement in Demers' game going from the 09-10 season to the 10-11 season. To think a defenseman has plateaued at the ripe age of 23 is just ridiculous.
